This is something I have a problem with and it concerns this nonduality bit. It’s a bit off of the “everything is one”, and the aspect of there not being an independent self. How everything that appears seperate is just an expression of the universe. SO if everything is one then that means that there are no friends and no one else.
It’s an extension of the “no self” proclaimed truth from buddhism. That what you see before you is merely just an extension of the universe and not something independent with it’s own essence. Therefor, seperateness is just an illusion since everything is connected by being part of the whole.
